Gotta say, I am lov­ing the new pack­ag­ing for all the Melt Art prod­ucts by Ranger. It looks so edgy and cool.  While at CHA I stud­ied every square inch of the Ranger booth look­ing at all the incred­i­ble products.

One of the make n takes taught by Deb­bie Tlach was cre­at­ing this really cute ring you can see on Ranger’s blog… click here for that link and here for the step by step instruc­tions. Great minds do think alike as I too loved Tim’s rose but­ton from his Fan­ci­ful Flower but­ton col­lec­tion and made the very same mold using Ranger’s Mold-n-Pour back in Jan­u­ary. His rose but­ton is the per­fect size for a ring or charm for a neck­lace. I used a sim­ple sil­ver ring base on mine because Ans­ley is a sim­ple kinda jew­elry person.

So I thought it would be fun to show you some of the dif­fer­ent things I cre­ated using the same Fan­ci­ful Flower but­ton and some vin­tage but­tons I had on hand. You all are going to want to make these they are so much FUN!

I cre­ated these using the Clear UTTE and some of the other col­ors. I believe the blue and fuch­sia col­ors have been dis­con­tin­ued but don’t quote me on that… the top two roses use their white and gold UTEE.

I cre­ated a mold using a vin­tage but­ton to cre­ate the polka dot ring.  It too is one of Ansley’s favorites. And look at how per­fectly you can fit a rhine­stone in the cen­ter of the rose embell­ish­ment. Seri­ously, you all are going to want to make these like crazy and you store own­ers this is the sim­plest make n take to do. You will have lines of peo­ple wait­ing to make these.

I made this ring  for Ansley’s friend. She also has a match­ing charm for a necklace.

Her charm is sim­i­lar to this one but with­out the rhine­stone. This charm is mine. I for­got to get a photo of the other one. Gosh I get so mad at myself when I for­get to take a photo of a project.

And here is the ring I cre­ated for Ans­ley. She wanted the rhine­stone in the cen­ter… like mother like daugh­ter. So ladies and gents get out that Melt­ing Pot, some UTTE, your Mold-n-Pour and start cre­at­ing. Before you know it you will be look­ing for things to make unique molds from, from all over your house.

UTEE is a great prod­uct and one I have a BLAST play­ing around with…

    I learned from Tim’s work­shop that the col­ored UTEEs are dis­con­tin­ued. Why? It is easy to change the color of UTEE in two ways. First using the heat safe dyes in the melt art col­lec­tion (do not put alco­hol inks in any hot melt art!), and with a pinch of any color emboss­ing pow­der you already have. For more info, check out my blog where I will review many tips and tricks Tim taught at CHA.
